## Exercise 6A

(i) 5x, 7x, -6x

Solution:-

In the above questions terms having the same literal factors are like terms.

= 5x + 7x + (-6x) … [∵ + × – = -]

Add terms having same sign first,

= 5x + 7x – 6x

= 12x – 6x

Solution:-

In the above questions terms having the same literal factors are like terms.

= (3/5)x + (2/3)x + (-4/5)x

LCM of 5, 3, and 5 is 15

= (9x + 10x – 12x)/ 15

= (19x – 12x)/ 15

= (7/15)x

(iii) 5a2b, -8a2b, 7a2b

Solution:-

In the above questions terms having the same literal factors are like terms.

= 4a2b

(iv) (3/4)x2, 5 x2, -3x2, -(1/4) x2

Solution:-

In the above questions terms having the same literal factors are like terms.

= (3/4)x2 + 5x2 – 3x2 – (1/4) x2

= (3/4)x2– (1/4) x2 + 5x2 – 3x2

= ((3-1)/4)x2 + 2x2

= (2/4)x2 + 2x2

= (1/2)x2 + 2x2

= ((1 + 4)/2)x2

= (5/2)x2

(v) x – 3y + 4z, y – 2x – 8z, 5x – 2y – 3z

Solution:-

Required sum,

= (x – 3y + 4z) + (y – 2x – 8z) + (5x – 2y – 3z)

Collecting like terms,

= x – 2x + 5x – 3y + y – 2y + 4z – 8z – 3z

= (1 – 2 + 5)x + (- 3 + 1 – 2)y + (4 – 8 – 3)z

= 4x – 4y – 7z

(vi) 2x2 – 3y2, 5x2 + 6y2, -3x2 – 4y2

Solution:-

Required sum,

= (2x2 – 3y2) + (5x2 + 6y2) + (-3x2 – 4y2)

Collecting like terms,

= 2x2 + 5x2 – 3x2 – 3y2 + 6y2 – 4y2

= (2 + 5 – 3)x2 + (– 3 + 6 – 4)y2

= 4x2 – y2

(vii) 5x – 2x2 – 8, 8x2 – 7x – 9, 3 + 7x2 – 2x

Solution:-

= (5x – 2x2 – 8) + (8x2 – 7x – 9) + (3 + 7x2 – 2x)

Collecting like terms,

= 2x2 + 8x2 + 7x2 + 5x – 7x – 2x – 8 – 9 + 3

= (-2 + 8 + 7)x2 + (5 – 7 – 2)x + ( – 8 – 9 + 3)

= 13x2 – 4x – 14

(viii) (2/3)a – (4/5)v + (3/5)c, -(3/4)a – (5/2)b + (2/3)c, (5/2)a + (7/4)b – (5/6)c

Solution:-

= (2/3)a -(3/4)a + (5/2)a – (4/5)b – (5/2)b + (7/4)b + (3/5)c + (2/3)c – (5/6)c

= [(2/3) – (3/4) + (5/2)]a + [(-4/5) – (5/2) + (7/4)]b + [(3/5) + (2/3) – (5/6)]c

= [(8 – 9 + 30)/12)a] + [(-16 -15 +30)/20)b] + [(18 + 20 – 25)/ 30)c]

= (29/12)a +- (31/20)b + (13/30)c

Collecting like terms,

= [(8/5)x – (3/2)x] + [(11/7)y – (5/3)y] + [(9/4)xy – (9/5)xy]

= (1/10)x – (2/21)y + (9/20)xy

(x) (3/2)x3 – (1/4)x2 + (5/3), (-5/4)x3 + (3/5)x2 – x + (1/5), -x2 + (3/8)x – (8/15)

Collecting like terms,

= [(3/2)x3 – (5/4)x3] + [- (1/4)x2 + (3/5)x2 -x2] + [– x + (3/8)x] + [(5/3) + (1/5) – (8/15)]

Solution:-

The difference of two like terms is a like term whose coefficient is the difference of the numerical coefficient of the two like terms.

We have,

= (4y – 5x) – (x – y)

Change the sign of each term of the expression to be subtracted and then add.

= 4y – 5x – x + y

= (-5x – x) + (4y – y)

= -5x + 3y)

= 3y – 5x

(iv) (a2 + b2 – 2ab) from (a2 + b2 + 2ab)

Solution:-

The difference of two like terms is a like term whose coefficient is the difference of the numerical coefficient of the two like terms.

We have,

= (a2 + b2 + 2ab) – (a2 + b2 – 2ab)

Change the sign of each term of the expression to be subtracted and then add.

= a2 + b2 + 2ab – a2 – b2 + 2ab

= (1 -1)a2 + (1 – 1)b2 + (2 + 2)ab

= (0)a2 + (0)b2 + (4)ab

= 4ab

(v) (x2 – y2) from (2x2 – 3y2 + 6xy)

Solution:-

The difference of two like terms is a like term whose coefficient is the difference of the numerical coefficient of the two like terms.

We have,

= (2x2 – 3y2 + 6xy) – (x2 – y2)

Change the sign of each term of the expression to be subtracted and then add.

= 2x2 – 3y2 + 6xy – x2 + y2

= (2x2 – x2) + (– 3y2 + y2) + 6xy

= (2 – 1)x2 + (– 3 + 1)y2 + 6xy

= 1x2 + (– 2y2) + 6xy

= 1x2 – 2y2 + 6xy

(vi) (x – y + 3z) from (2z – x – 3y)

Solution:-

The difference of two like terms is a like term whose coefficient is the difference of the numerical coefficient of the two like terms.

We have,

= (2z – x – 3y) – (x – y + 3z)

Change the sign of each term of the expression to be subtracted and then add.

= 2z – x – 3y – x + y – 3z

= (2z – 3z) + (– x – x) + (- 3y + y)

= (2 – 3)z + (– 1 – 1)x + (- 3 +1)y

= -1z – 2x – 2y

3. Subtract (2a – 3b + 4c) from the sum of (a + 3b – 4c), (4a – b + 9c) and (-2b + 3c – a)

Solution:-

First we find the sum of (a + 3b – 4c), (4a – b + 9c) and (-2b + 3c – a)

= (a + 3b – 4c) + (4a – b + 9c) + (-2b + 3c – a)

= (a + 3b – 4c + 4a – b + 9c – 2b + 3c – a)

= (a + 4a – a) + (3b – b – 2b) + (-4c + 9c + 3c)

= (1 + 4 – 1)a + (3 – 1 – 2)b + (-4 + 9 + 3)c

= 4a + (0)b + 8c

=4a + 8c

Then,

Subtract (2a – 3b + 4c) from (4a + 8c)

= (4a + 8c) – (2a – 3b + 4c)

= 4a + 8c – 2a + 3b – 4c

= (4a – 2a) + (3b) + (8c – 4c)

= 2a + 3b + 4c

(a + b) × (c + d) = a × (c + d) + b × (c + d) = (a × c + a × d) + (b × c + b × d)

= ac + ad + bc + bd

Let,

a= 5x, b= 7, c= 3x, d= 4

Now,

= 5x × (3x + 4) +7 × (3x + 4)

= [(5x × 3x) + (5x × 4)] + [(7 × 3x) + (7 × 4)]

= [15x2 + 20x + 21x + 28]

= [15x2 + 41x + 28]

2. (4x – 3) (2x + 5)

Solution:-

Suppose (a – b) and (c + d) are two binomials. By using the distributive law of multiplication over addition twice, we may find their product as given below.

(a – b) × (c + d) = a × (c + d) – b × (c + d) = (a × c + a × d) – (b × c + b × d)

= ac + ad – bc – bd

Let,

a= 4x, b= 3, c= 2x, d= 5

Now,

= 4x × (2x + 5) -3 × (2x + 5)

= [(4x × 2x) + (4x × 5)] – [(3 × 2x) + (3 × 5)]

= [8x2 + 20x – 6x – 15]

= [8x2 + 14x – 15]

= ac + ad – bc – bd

Let,

a= x, b= 6, c= 24x, d= 9

Now,

= x × (4x + 9) -6 × (4x + 5)

= [(x × 4x) + (x × 9)] – [(6 × 4x) + (6 × 9)]

= ac – ad – bc + bd

Let,

a= 5y, b= 1, c= 3y, d= 8

Now,

= 5y × (3y – 8) -1 × (3y – 8)

= [(5y × 3y) + (5y × -8)] – [(1 × 3y) + (1 × -8)]

= [15y2 – 40y – 3y + 8]

5. (7x + 2y) (x + 4y)

Solution:-

Suppose (a + b) and (c + d) are two binomials. By using the distributive law of multiplication over addition twice, we may find their product as given below.

(a + b) × (c + d) = a × (c + d) + b × (c + d) = (a × c + a × d) + (b × c + b × d)

= ac + ad + bc + bd

Let,

a= 7x, b= 2y, c= x, d= 4y

Now,

= 7x × (x + 4y) +2y × (x + 4y)

= [(7x × x) + (7x × 4y)] + [(2y × x) + (2y × 4y)]

= [7x2 + 28xy + 2yx + 8y2]

= [7x2 + 30xy + 8y2]

Solution:-

Suppose (a + b) and (c + d) are two binomials. By using the distributive law of multiplication over addition twice, we may find their product as given below.

(a + b) × (c + d) = a × (c + d) + b × (c + d) = (a × c + a × d) + (b × c + b × d)

= ac + ad + bc + bd

Let,

a= 9x, b= 5y, c= 4x, d= 3y

Now,

= 9x × (4x + 3y) +5y × (4x + 3y)

= [(9x × 4x) + (9x × 3y)] + [(5y × 4x) + (5y × 3y)]

= ac – ad – bc + bd

Let,

a= 3m, b= 4n, c= 2m, d= 3n

Now,

= 3m × (2m – 3n) -4n × (2m – 3n)

= [(3m × 2m) + (3m × -3n)] – [(4n × 2m) + (4n × -3n)]

a= 0.8x, b= 0.5y, c= 1.5x, d= 3y

Now,

= 0.8x × (1.5x – 3y) – 0.5y × (1.5x – 3y)

= [(0.8x × 1.5x) + (0.8x × -3y)] – [(0.5y × 1.5x) + (0.5y × -3y)]

= [1.2x2 – 2.4xy – 0.75yx + 1.5y2]

= ac – ad – bc + bd

Let,

a= (2/5)x, b=(1/2)y, c= 10x, d= 8y

Now,

= (2/5)x × (10x – 8y) – (1/2)y × (10x – 8y)

= [((2/5)x × 10x) + ((2/5)x × -8y)] – [((1/2)y × 10x) + ((1/2)y × -8y)]

= [4x2 – (16/5)xy – 5yx + 4y2]

= ac + ad + bc + bd

Let,

a= (3/4)a, b=(2/3)b, c= 4a, d= 3b

Now,

= (3/4)a × (4a + 3b) + (2/3)b × (4a + 3b)

= [((3/4)a × 4a) + ((3/4)a + 3b)] – [((2/3)b × 4a) + ((2/3)b × + 3b)]

= [3a2 + (9/4)ab + (8/3)ab + 2b2]

= [3a2 + ((27+32)/12)ab + 2b2]

= [3a2 + (59/12)ab + 2b2]

(a – b) × (c – d) = a × (c – d) – b × (c – d) = (a × c – a × d) – (b × c – b × d)

= ac – ad – bc + bd

Let,

a= x2, b= a2, c= x, d= a

Now,

= x2 × (x – a) – a2 × (x – a)

= [(x2 × x) + (x2 × -a)] – [(a2 × x) + (a2 × -a)]

= [x3 – x2a – a2x + a3]

= ac + ad – bc – bd

Let,

a= 2x2, b= 5y2, c= x2, d= 3y2

Now,

= 2x2 × (x2 + 3y2) – 5y2 × (x2 + 3y2)

= [(2x2 × x2) + (2x2 × 3y2)] – [(5y2 × x2) + (5y2 × 3y2)]
